Planning commission gives Omnicare the nod


An expanding local industry got a green light Monday night to begin pouring walls and getting building permits, with a unanimous vote of the Joint City-County Planning Commission of Barren County of its final development plan.

Omnicare, a provider of pharmaceutical and related services, has already been moving the earth at the last lot on the right of Carroll Knicely Drive in the Highland Glen industrial park owned by the Glasgow-Barren County Industrial Development Economic Authority in preparation for its new facility.

The tract of land contains 26.78 acres, but only 14.55 acres are being disturbed for the current project. The company is already figuring into the plan a possible later expansion, but if it results in an acre or more of disturbed ground, the commission would have to approve it.

The 84,000-square-foot building will roughly triple the size of the existing location on North L. Roger Wells Boulevard. The plan calls for 154 parking spaces for employees and visitors.

Thom Kendall, planning administrator for the Joint City-County Planning Commission of Barren County, reviewed for the commission members the changes to the development plan that have occurred since the preliminary approval was granted Aug. 20. For example, the driveway will be 26 feet wide instead of the original 30 feet, but that’s still 2 feet wider than is required and the type of pavement for the main drive aisle in the middle of the parking lot will be light duty rather than heavy, and no heavy truck traffic will be permitted there.
